The best thing about traveling to Phuket is that visitors will have plenty of things to do or attractions to visit on or off the island. And as if that advantage is not yet enough, venues for the different activities available, and the various attractions themselves ทัวร์ภูเก็ต, are all within accessible range whether by driving on land or by sailing on the waters. Shortly said, there cannot be a dull moment when one is on a Phuket tour package, just as the following discussion of some of the best itineraries and activities in this exotic island will show:
Old Phuket Town
Old Phuket Town is a rich tapestry of history and culture, with its Buddhist and Chinese temples, impromptu private and public museums, preserved stop houses, shrines, small printing shops, quaint cafes, and a small area that is formerly a red-light district. There are also luxurious Sino colonial mansions which have been once occupied by tin barons a hundred years ago when tin was a very important commodity during the last century. Restaurants and cafes are available to refresh yourself while taking a tour of the town.
Phang Nga Bay
Phang Nga Bay is well known for the picturesque natural beauty that makes it unforgettable – the magnificent limestone karsts jutting out of the emerald green waters. Within this bay are two other equally beautiful natural landmarks, the James Bond Island and the Koh Panyee. The best way to enjoy this exotic natural beauty is by way of a leisurely day cruise passing the limestone islands, stopping by the beaches to enjoy its relaxing beauty and quietude.
Phuket Big Buddha
One of the most sacred landmarks of Phuket is the Big Buddha. Sitting atop Nakkerd Hills in between Kata and Chalong, the giant image stands real tall at 45 meters high, making it easy to be seen from far away. The image site itself is a loft that offers the best 360 degree view of the surrounding vistas of Phuket Town, Karon beaches, Kata, Chalong Bay, and much more. It is one of the attractions in Phuket that visitors should not forego visiting, and can easily be reached via a six kilometer access road from Phuket’s main artery.
Phuket FantaSea Show
Known as the island’s biggest show, the Phuket FantaSea Show is an extravagant display of trapeze artists, and a cast of hundreds of performing elephants along with other animals that enacts a splendid storyline that will make the evening for the show’s audience. This event also features one of the largest buffets in Asia, the show itself being held in a theme park with carnival-like games, shopping outlets, food outlets, a Similan Adventure Center, and a Palace of the Elephants. Building designs are also made to impress, and the fitting description of the whole show and its venue is “big, bright, ornate”, it being intended to be “the ultimate theme park” in Phuket.
